Shot Glass Sliders

it's cliche...i know. but the thought of an itty bitty {low fat} slider popping in my mouth on i could really care less about the packers or the steelers superbowl sunday just feels right. so here's the simple game plan...


Ingredients {in order of use}
  • 1 1/2lb ground turkey {*freeze any extra you don't use!}
  • 1 egg {or 1/4 cup egg whites}
  • 1/2 16oz packet of dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese {whatever you prefer-i used mexi-cheese b/c we had it in the house already}
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce {optional...but great if you have on hand!}
  • salt and pepper {to taste}
  • 2 packages of wheat hamburger buns {16 total}
  • 6 slices 2% american cheese slices
  • optional toppings: ketchup, mustard, pickles, onion!
1. mix turkey, egg, ranch mix, shredded cheese, worcestershire & salt/pepper in a large bowl.
2. form into small balls and press semi-flat {about 2" in width} on a baking sheet. set aside.

3. using a shot glass, cut 4 "mini buns" out of each full-sized bun. set aside in a bowl.
*instead of a shot glass, i used a jigger that was on our bar, fancy for shot glass!
4. heat a grill pan or skillet to medium heat. grill 1st side for about 2 minutes. flip slider and top with piece of cheese {to cover slider} and cook for another 2 minutes.

5. once cooked through, place on a paper towel-covered plate to absorb any excess grease. allow to cool.

6. assemble bun and burger and hold together with a fancy cocktail pick! serve with optional toppings nearby!
